Can't get Blueray player to release DVD

I inserted a brand new Blueray DVD into my Samsung Blueray DVD player. While I was doing this, the player started doing a firmware update. Now I can't get it to play or release the disc. Help!

You may now have corrupted firmware. did the dvd contain the firmware update?

Are you sure there wasn't already a cd in the tray? (Ie two cd's are now inside?

The easiest way to remove the cd if turning off fails is to remove the screws around the casing. Lift off the lid and the cd should come out easily, however if the update was corrupt or the wrong firmware you may now have a dead player.

Try removing the Cd as described first with the power off and plug removed.
Then see if the unit powers up and the drawer opens.
If so you may be able to revert it to its original firmware from the vendors site.

My onn tv Model tl1939 BDTP refuses to read DVDs. I replaced the DVD with a new player, but the fault's the same. Any ideas?


Could you be inserting a BD instead of DVD. DVD players will not play Blueray. Bluerays will play DVD.

Just received a Samsung BR BD-P1500 2009 model, as a gift. No one code for the remote control work for my Panasonic Viera TC-L37D2 bought in 2010. Samsung "assistance" told me that my BR is too...


Unfortunately, Samsung tech support was accurate. Most universal remotes (and the portion of the remote programming to control other devices is the same program) only have codes for devices released 6 months or more before the remote was programmed.

However, any universal remote that is newer than the TV (by that 6 month programming period) should control both devices. Low end universal remotes may not support all of the features of either the TV or the Blu-ray player. The remotes that can be programmed via a USB connection to a computer are the fastest to set up. (Alternatives: You can use both remotes when watching a movie or get a Viera link Blu-ray player that is compatible with the TV. For the second option, you need a device with the HDAVI Control (not above Control 5) connected via a good HDMI cable)

I wish that I had better news.

Avitar says it needs to be updated


Hello,

Step one is to find the manufacturers website for the Blu-ray player you are using.

Go to their technical support page and download the latest release or update for that player. (You may be asked to enter the model number and or serial number of the Blu-ray player you are using.)

Save or burn the downloaded file to a DVD and insert into your Blu-ray player. (While there are many easy to use DVD Burner software packages, Roxio is a user friendly application found on most computers.) Follow the on-screen prompts.

Or if the your player has a USB port, download the update into a flash drive, insert the flash into the usb port of your player, press Usb on the player's remote and the update should commence.

Good luck.

Blue ray DVD disc doesn't load but other DVDs do load/play.


You may have to apply an update. There's a key used to decrypt the content on Blueray discs that changes from time to time in an attempt to thwart piracy. Updating involves visiting the manufacturer's(Samsung) website, downloading the update onto a USB stick, and starting the player with the USB stick inserted.

DVD stuck in sony blueray player bdp s300


Step1There are a few ways to get your dvd/cd drive release itself. The first thing you should try is shut your equipment completely off for a couple of minutes allowing it to cool down. Once you turn it back on try to press the release button on your equipment. Step2If that does not work try to use a very thin flat tip screwdriver. Insert in on one of the sides of the dvd/cd drive and try to pull it out softly while pressing the eject button simultaneously. Do not force it out but give enough pressure while pressing the eject button. Step3More than likely inserting a screwdrive should release the dvd/cd drive. You can also try a butterknife as well just don't use to much force. Something else to check for is to make sure the power is acutally on for the device. If you are trying to open a drive that is not even on it will never open up for you.
